Pillow Talk

charlotte casadejus!

After an aromatherapy bath, chamomile massage and three readings of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, your stubborn little night owl still refuses to get any shut-eye.

Cushion the blow of bedtime with a beautiful pillow from Charlotte Casadéjus.

The London-based designer’s collections of vintage embroidered linens is one of the largest in Europe. The handcrafted pieces use a single or double antique monogram (some dating back to the 1850s) and are available in a range of sizes — from an extra-small square (for snuggling) to a large bolster (for decoration).

All of which should make your wide-eyed princess feel like a sleeping beauty.

And hopefully rest like one.
